Is Max Keiser’s attempt to put JP Morgan out of business working following the mother of all silver physical squeezes? The price of silver has been stable in the past few days, but if the US official precious metal seller is to be trusted, this will not last long. According to the US Mint, sales of 1-ounce American Eagle silver coins are headed for the strongest month since at least May, Bloomberg reports. And according to our update, the May total has not only been passed, but the November MTD total is already the highest in 2010. More details: a record 3,775,000 silver coins have been sold this month, compared with 3,636,500 in May, according to data on the Mint website. Silver futures in New York touched a 30-year high of $29.34 an ounce on Nov. 9. American Eagle coins also are available in gold and platinum. The Mint said 62,500 ounces of gold Eagles have been sold in November. What is interesting is that sales of the coins continue at an astronomic pace despite the nearly 10% premium one has to pay over spot. What is more interesting, is that the Mint has not run out yet. Yet the refreshing thing, is that instead of buying paper certficates promising that one’s presumed purchases of gold is held by the DTCC, Americans are once again going straight into physical. Here is hoping Keiser’s plan ultimately unravels whatever the RICO suit against JPM and HSBC leaves untouched.
